Businesses are on a break-neck journey towards digital transformation. However, speed without a proper approach will only get to the wrong place faster. Integrations built too fast or with no proper testing can cause major rework, costing time and money and possibly impacting application performance and, in due course, reputation. On the other hand, successful integration is delivered not only quickly but with high quality.

To integrate better and faster, every integration essentially has to be automated, leveraging best practices by applying AI to real-world operational data to detect issues and recommendations, driving continuous improvement, bringing together the right combination of integration capabilities as contrasting to a one-style-fits-all approach. Accomplish the ideal mix of new and existing system development by modernizing core applications to be cloud-native and exposing the value of your data while closing other systems.

IBM Cloud Pak for Integration is the solution to bring in both speed and quality, improving integrations and your applications by covering AI-powered automation across the integration lifecycle. As a result, companies can speed their integration development by 300%, reduce integration costs by over 33% and increase overall operational competency while maintaining enhanced security, governance, and availability.

  • Connectors Catalog: Connect everything, virtually anywhere. Pre-built, security-rich intelligent connectors, including RPA, scrape key details from existing applications, enabling effective connectivity on-premises or in the cloud.
  • Security-Rich Gateway: Apply security consistently with no external security solutions. Integrate, control, and boost the delivery of workloads across various channels in a security-rich environment, that includes mobile, web, API, service-oriented architecture (SOA), B2B, and cloud.

IBM Cloud Pak for Integration Benefits

Accelerate development through automation, powered by AI. Uses built-in AI to accelerate integration development by 50% –300%. IBM Cloud Pak for Integration comes with every single thing the developers need for a speedy delivery. Low-code/no-code integration tooling uses built-in natural language processing (NLP) and AI to offer smarter mapping results. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to automate integrations with automated API test generation, legacy apps, pre-built intelligent connectors, and a common, shareable asset repository to support reuse.

Improve integration value with continuous feedback based on real-time data. IBM Cloud Pak for Integration uses operational data particular to your company to prepare the embedded AI that automates integration work. This closed-loop approach supports flow, and field mapping recommendations creates more ingenious API test cases and helps find your current environment's inefficiencies.

Increase efficiency and reduce costs by using multiple integration approaches and styles. Multiple integration styles are needed to address the increasing complexity and drive down costs in hybrid IT environments. This multi-style integration is a major feature of IBM Cloud Pak for integration, from creating app integration flows and exposing reuse work via an API to having continuous back-end availability for updates using business-critical messaging. In addition, with the industry's most complete set of capabilities in a single platform, it helps you avoid several licensing fees that come with other vendor offerings.

IBM Cloud Pak for Integration offers proven DMZ and hybrid cloud-ready security and performance with a gateway that has not been hacked in 15+ years. Delivers powerful performance with over 30,000 transactions per second and consists of resiliency and autoscaling to improve integration admin's operations. In addition, businesses can establish adherence to security and compliance policies and identify deployment processes, and security issues as they occur, providing data to feed AI for future best practices and asset protection.

Improve operational and workload efficiency through AI-powered automation while reducing risk with processing mining and robotic process automation (RPA) capabilities, helping you find anomalies across integrations and extend integrations to otherwise unreachable assets. In addition, with built-in automated workload scaling, balancing, and self-healing, you will experience up to five-nines application availability and throughput optimization.


IBM Cloud Pak for Integration catches deployment, operation, and security issues as they occur, decreasing the time taken to find the root cause and streamlining the steps that prevent from adhering to security and compliance policies across all integration assets.
